The Police will continue to work closely with various stakeholders, and the community, to prevent and deter outrage of modesty cases. The Police would also like to urge members of the public to remain vigilant and to report the matter to the Police immediately, if they witnessed an incident of outrage of modesty, or are aware of someone being a victim of outrage of modesty.
